    Solution:
    Open Disk Utility.
    Select your external hard disk and run a “verify” on it. After a few minutes (depending on the size of your drive), you should be good to go. You don’t need to run a “repair” on it... (at least I didn’t have to). See photo for reference.
    This should fix the permissions issue, because on my Mac running Mountain Lion I was unable to edit the permissions in the get info dialog window even after "unlocking" the drive.

  • The iphone cannot be synced you do not have the privilege to make changes

    I have a MAC mini and I got an iPhone5 two days ago. When I connected the iphone to the mac mini or the first time it worked fine but now the iphone can't be synchronized using itunes I get a message saying 'the iphone cannot be synced you do not have the privilege to make changes'.
    Any ideas?

    Well mine is now ok.
    I noticed that my iPhoto library  (on an external disk) was not allowing write access and the drive had become locked, so to test, I migrated my library back to the main drive and set iPhoto to open that as the main library. I performed a sync with iTunes and all has gone trough fine.
    Makes me happpy, as my next step was to factory reset the phone.

    Just tried to import a new CD into my iTunes music library, but get this error code "error occurred while converting file. You do not have the privilege to make changes"....any thoughts? Have not tried to change anything- only import CD ??

    Do you have read& write permissions to your iTunes library?

  • When trying to download or sync podcasts, I get an error code "you do not have the privilege to make changes". Please help!

    When trying to download or sync podcasts, I get an error code "you do not have the privilege to make changes". Please help! I tried uninstalling iTunes and reinstalling, but that did not work. Also, I rebooted and that didn't work, either.

    I tried to use an external hard drive from my windows computer that was formatted in NTFS Windows format.  Mac Pro sees that hard drive as "read only".  Itunes works on existing media on the hard drive to play music or movies, but when you try to purchase from itunes store and download you get the above message.  You need to move your library to a library that is formatted in exFAT format (which can be used both by "windows" and mac computers. 

  • "You did not have the privilege to make changes"

    Hey all, I am new to the mac scene, and successully managed to transfer my itunes library from PC format to Mac format with the songs all stored on a USB Hard drive which works great.
    However I have tried to rip a CD today and I get the following message:
    "Error occured while converting the file - You did not have the privilege to make changes"
    Why is this happening? Ive read that it may be a permission issue on the USB HD?
    I have only had my mac for 1 day so my knowledge is very limited.
    EDIT - Actually, could this be to do with how the USB is formatted? NTFS.
    If so, will I have to buy another USB Hard Drive and literally drag and drop everything from the old one to the new one, formatted the correct way?
    Thanks

    yes.
    Mac OS X can natively read from, but not write to, NTFS formatted drives.
    If so, will I have to buy another USB Hard Drive ... formatted the correct way?
    that would be ideal. format the drive for Mac (HFS+).
    alternatively, you could try installing the _*NTFS 3G*_ driver on the Mac.
    JGG
    Thanks for that, I will download and install later.
    Are there any limitations to using the above driver as against buying a new USB HD?

  • "Error has occurred... You do not have the privilege to make changes."

    When I try to import anything into my library, I get this error message-
    "Error occurred while converting the file "song name here". You do not have the privilege to make changes."
    My i Tunes library is located in an external hard drive, but this has caused no problems before, nothing has changed in my system.
    Any ideas?

    Found someone else replying to a similar problem and this is what they said...Not sure if this will help but I am trying!
    (Thanks to JollyGiant)
    Check if you have read & write permissions on your iTunes folder.
    in finder, right-click on it and get info. unlock the little padlock (you may have to enter your admin password) and change the permission settings. next, click on the little gear-shaped icon and apply to enclosed items like so
    http://www.renewedvision.com/ProPresenterHelp/pgs/images/faqpppermissions.jpg
    you may also give everyone read & write access. if this doesn't help, try the same on your iTunes folder (not just the iTunes music folder).

  • IPad 3 syncing issue on iOS6 - "You do not have the privilege to make changes"

    I have updated my ipad 3  to iOS6 and now it is coming up with the following warning message when i try to sync "The iPad cannot be synced. You do not have the privilege to make changes" also it is not recognised wirelessly under devices, I have to connect with the usb cable.
    I am having a similar issue on my iPhone 4s as well - this IS recognised wirelessly but has the saming warning message.
    Both devices are updated to iOS6 and i am running iTunes 11.0.1
    Any help or advice????
    Thanks,

    Finally managed to get this sorted, i noticed that it was at the point of the photos backing up i was getting the warning message so decided to try a few things,
    What worked was holding down the option key and clicking on Aperture/iPhoto this gives you the option to select the library you want to choose from on your drive/external drive, i clicked the default one and reloaded Aperture.
    Then i simply closed and re-opened itunes and it found the iPad wirelessly(still not sure why doing this on Aperture helped with this problem) then hit sync and everything worked OK.
    I had changed nothing previously so unsure what started the issue whether it was iOS 6 or just an issue on my Mac but either way all works fine so i'm happy.

  • "You do not have the privilege to make changes."

    When I try to download songs I've purchased from iTunes, I get an error saying, "You do not have the privilege to make changes."  It's like the iTunes store thinks I'm trying to download the music to another account, but it's not.  Any ideas?

  • ITunes 8: You do not have the privilege to make changes

    After upgrading to iTunes 8 I get this error when syncing my iPhone.
    The iPhone "..." cannot be synced. You do not have the privilege to make changes.
    I restored my iPhone hoping this would fix the issue but the error still happens.
    Please help!

    I am getting this after upgrading to 8.02 but with my iPod, not my iPhone.
    I deauthorized the computer and then authorized it. No effect.
    I am also suspicious that my iPhone updates are not being applied correctly, though no error is appearing.
    This reminds me of authorization problems with the iphone that I have documented previously.
    I will blog on this problem here:

    I know Apple has had authentication problems with legacy .mac customers. We're people who's purchases are tied to our .mac address, but we left .mac long before the .me switch.
    I think Apple may have unique authentication problems with this group.

  • The ipod cannot be synced. you do not have the privilege to make changes

    My ipod gets half way though the this message, ipod cannot be synced. you do not have the privilege to make changes.
    What to do?

    After searching this issue out and trying a bazillion different things (with no luck), I deselected 'Enable Disk Use' then re-enabled, and everything is working now.
    Dear Apple -- What is up with that?

    You can try to repair the permissions for the Firefox application files and folders.
    You can also do this:
    * Download a new copy of the Firefox program: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html
    * Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re)install.
    * Install the new version that you have downloaded.
